Angelina plays the part of adult Georgia, a girl living in the South being 1/4 Indian. She has to learn to live with the "secret" of being part Indian, because Indians were at war with the white folks at the time.. She falls in love with a doctor who loves her "secret" cause it makes her unique and who takes her to Texas where she meets her old friend Euphemia, who was seperated from Georgia when her parents died while still a child. Euphemia and Georgia have grown up differently and have differing opinions about slavery as well as Indians and have to go through their seperate trials to finally reunite as friends as the film comes to an end. There are a lot of deaths in this movie, due to wars and Collera. I would give the movie a B rating.

Here is what the cover has to say:
Two time Emmy Award winner Dana Delany and acclaimed actress Annabeth Gish head up a powerful ensemble cast in this moving story of friendship, romance, courage and survival in the Old West.
Sarah Ashby McClure (Delany) and her younger sister Euphemia (Gish) are two fearless women determined to find their place in a male-dominated world. When Mexican forces threaten their homeland, the sisters defy the odds to lead their family and friends to safety. Resettling on the rugged West Texas plains, the pioneers soon become the targets of wild Indian raids. But nothing will stop Sarah, Euphemia and their devoted followers from defending their land while their men fight in the Civil War. After peace is restored, the sisters continue to fight for justice in this true-life epic.
